These accused persons are charged that, during 2014 and 2015, after learning that some persons have been taking large amounts of money from Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Republic of Croatia, which money originates from unreported profits and income and from tax evasions, most often from the business operations of companies and enterprises owned by citizens of the People’s Republic of China, mainly in the area of the Brčko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on dozens of occasions, acting as an organized group, they illegally exported extremely large amounts of money, between 15,000 and 142,000 Euro, across the state border of Bosnia and Herzegovina and into the Republic of Croatia.
After that, the money thus exported was paid into the accounts of the accused persons in the payment system of the Republic of Croatia, after which the payments were transferred to the accounts of persons in the People’s Republic of China, and the accused persons would take the agreed percentage of the money as compensation for the commission of the criminal offence, and thus they acquired large amounts of unlawful material gain.
The investigation established that, in the manner as stated above, several million euros were illegally taken out of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and that money was then transferred from the territory of Croatia to the accounts of persons in the People’s Republic of China.
Also, it was proposed that about 700,000 BAM, seized during the searches, be confiscated.
As part of the investigation in this case against international money laundering, significant cooperation has been achieved with partner institutions of the Republic of Croatia.
The Indictment was forwarded to the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina confirmed it.
